Hey Jim - the railways were nationalized in 1948; I don't htink diesel trucks were common then. Rather, the railways were utterly worn out after WW2 and needed massive replacement of equipment.

What you might be thinking of is the late 50s loss of traffic that made many lines uneconomic to operate.
